Development of renewable energy power plant represents a strategic way to increase electrification ratio and to reduce CO2 emission. One of renewable energy potential resources in Indonesia is solar power since the country is located in the equator line. In 2014, there are 8,170 kWp community based solar power plant that has been built by the government in the rural area. However, advantages of community based solar power plant will depend on its sustainability. This study examines the sustainability of community based solar power plant based on an interview with local government. It also determines the potential of community based solar power plant reduces CO2 emission at the research location. The interview was conducted with Authorized Environmental Agency. The results show that sustainability of solar power plant in the research area is considered to be good. It is also known that CO2 emission reduction in research location during its lifetime is 316,302 kg. It is believed that this successful example can provide policy recommendation for government to develop a more solar power plant in another rural area.
